Sarah lives together with John, her father. She would love to have a cat. Yet John says: "I am the boss and I don't want a cat." Sarah sits in her tree and is both angry and sad. Then she has a good idea. Sarah starts acting like a mouse: she squeaks and nibbles at the food in the cupboard. John places a mousetrap, but of course the trap stays empty. The squeaking and nibbling contines until John gives in and fetches a cat from the neighbouring farmer. Sarah is very glad!
An amusing and recognisable story with little exercises and games.
